If you are using Avast, follow the steps below to add the game to it’s exclusion folder.

  1. Open the Avast Antivirus user interface and select  Menu and then Settings
  2. Make sure the General tab is selected, then click Exceptions
  3. Now, click the Add Exception button.
  4. Add an exception in one of the following ways:
    • Type the file path, folder path, or URL into the text box, then click Add Exception.
    • Click Browse, tick the box next to the file or folder you want to add to the exceptions list, then click OK.
  5. Select the Crusader Kings 3 folder
